I believe that book #9 of the Little House series is actually my favorite. It's the last one, and it shows how Laura and Almanzo "get together". Such a sweet story! I so enjoyed learning about the first years of their marriage, and how they barely scraped by, yet loved each other through it all. I wish the Little House series didn't have to end here! After finishing "The First Four Years" I found myself now desiring to find out more about Laura's life beyond what she penned in her books. I hope to locate some biographies and do some historical research on this someday.
